Michigan Highways Master List: 1918–Present

The Michigan Highways Master List is a complete catalogue of every state trunkline and Intercounty highway designation ever used in Michigan, from 1918 to today. This list was concieved out of many requests for information on route designations no longer in use, such as "Was there ever an M-41?" or "I heard about an ALTERNATE US-23. Was there such a thing?"

This page lists each designation in numerical order, from 1 through 696 followed by the Intercounty Highways, and is separated into listings generally corresponding to the setup of this website (e.g. 1-9, 10-19, etc.) for easier reference. Five 'types' of designations are included: current, unsigned, future and former routes, as well as those which have never been used to date. Each is color-coded, as shown in the "Highway Status Key" below. Current and Future route designations include a link to the regular listing on the website. The few Unsigned routes are also linked to a listing on the website. For those Formerly-Used designations, a short description of the former route is included for referencial purposes. Often, links to current highway listings are also included. Never-Used designations, of course, feature no description, as they have never existed in the system.

With an undertaking of this magnitude, there may be a designation or two which have been overlooked or mis-stated. I have combed through dozens of sources and literally hundreds of old road and street maps, so the information contained on this page is reasonably complete and accurate. However, if you should find any information which is incorrect, or if you know of a designation which has not been included here, please drop me a line at chris.bessert@gmail.com.

US-16 ALT FMR   GRAND HAVEN: In the early 1940s, after US-16 was relocated onto the direct route between Nunica and Muskegon, the former route via M-104 and US-31 was designated ALT US-16 for a short time.
US-16 BUS FMR   GRAND RAPIDS: When US-16 was transferred onto the southern and western bypass of Grand Rapids (the former BYP US-16), the former route of US-16 through downtown Grand Rapids was designated BUS US-16.
US-16 BUS FMR   FARMINGTON: For many years, the "Farmington Cut-Off" (now the M-5 freeway) was for eastbound traffic only, meaning the original route of US-16 along Grand River Ave through downtown Farmington retained the "official" routing of US-16. Later, when the "Cut-Off" was opened to two-way traffic and US-16 transferred to it, the former route of US-16 through Farmington was designated BUS US-16. Replaced by BL I-96 in the 1960s, now an unsigned state highway.
US-16 BYP FMR   GRAND RAPIDS: When originally constructed, the "Grand Rapids Beltline System" was designated M-114.

US-23A FMR   The Michigan State Highway Dept originally designated M-13 from Kawkawlin to Standish as ALT US-23 when the current I-75/US-23 freeway was completed in 1967. MSHD actually posted the former US-23 as "ALT US-23," but when that designation was not approved by the AASHTO, the department gave in and extended the M-13 designation along the route.
US-23A FMR c1929—c1931 Another short-lived US-23A designation existed from c.1929-1930 when a new US-23 routing was built on the east shore of the Saginaw River between Saginaw and Bay City. The former route was designated US-23A for only a short time, assumedly since the AASHTO declined to okay this new designation. By 1931, US-23A had been redesignated as part of M-47.

(This had been previously designated as US-25A.) Then, when the Detroit-Toledo Expressway was completed from the Ohio state line northerly past Monroe to the Woodhaven area of Wayne Co, it was designated US-24A. A few years later, US-24A was decommissioned in favor of the I-75 designation.

US-27 FMR 1926—2002 Historic US-27 Listing
US-27A FMR   One of the earliest Alternate US Highways in the nation. The US-27 mainline ran northerly into St. Louis, while US-27A ran west into downtown Alma, then north back to US-27 west of St. Louis and north of Alma. When the US-27 freeway was completed at St. Louis and Alma in the 1960s, this US-27A routing was redesignated as BUS US-27, a "mirror-image" of St. Louis' BUS US-27.
US-27A FMR   When US-27 was moved to a bypass routing west of Shepherd along Federal Rd, the former route through Shepherd was designated US-27A. This designation was dropped in the 1930s and was never designated BUS US-27.
US-27 BUS FMR   MARSHALL: When the I-69/US-27 freeway was completed west of Marshall in the late-1960s, a BUS US-27 designation was commissioned along Michigan Ave from I-69/US-27 easterly into downtown Marshall, then northerly along the former US-27 to I-94. This designation survived for several years before being removed.
US-27 BUS FMR   CHARLOTTE: The original routing of US-27 through downtown Charlotte, commissioned when the US-27 bypass was completed. Survived for a couple years after the coming of I-69, but was eventually replaced by the current BL I-69 routing.

US-27 TR FMR   For many years, there were two routings for US-27 and M-78 through downtown Lansing. The US-27/M-78 "Passenger Car Route" ran along Capitol Ave and Saginaw St. (This would be considered the "mainline" routing.) A US-27/M-78 "Truck Route" ran east on Main St, north on Grand Ave, east on Kalamazoo Ave and north on Larch St. TRUCK US-27/TRUCK M-78 was eventually replaced by the mainline US-27/M-78 when the Capitol Ave routing was given back to local control.

US-31A FMR   US-31A was the original downtown Muskegon bypass along Getty and Marquette Aves. Later, US-31 was transferred onto the US-31A alignment, and US-31A was moved onto the former US-31 routing through downtown Muskegon. US-31A was redesignated BUS US-31 in the 1940s, and retains that designation today.
US-31A FMR   As with Muskegon, US-31 was the orignal bypass of Ludington along Pere Marquette Rd, while US-31 continued to jog through downtown Ludington. Later replaced by the mainline US-31 routing.
US-31A FMR   A "business" routing through downtown Beulah. US-31A was a very short highway running one block west of US-31, and likely an original routing of US-31 through the city. Now a locally-designated street.

M-31 FMR 1918—1926 M-31 was a pre-1926 highway. In 1920, M-31 began in Saginaw and ran easterly on present M-81 through Reese, then north through Gilford on Bradleyville Rd, then east again on present M-138 through Fairgrove and Akron. M-31 then turned north on present M-24 into Unionville and northeasterly along present M-25 through Sebewaing. South of Bay Port, M-31 turned east to follow the present M-142 through Bad Axe to M-27 (later M-51) west of Harbor Beach, where it ended. In 1923, M-31 continued east into Harbor Beach, then south along present M-25 through Port Sanilac and Lexington, ending in Port Huron. With the coming of US Highways in 1926, M-31 gave way to countless other designations and has not been used since, assumedly to minimize confusion with US-31.

M-55 BUS FMR   HOUGHTON LAKE HEIGHTS: For many years, M-55 turned south to run concurrently with US-27, then turned east back to its current alignment at Houghton Lake, effectively bypass Houghton Lake Heights. The former route of M-55 throught the Heights bore the BUS M-55 during this timeframe. It is now part of the M-55 mainline again.
M-56 [I] FMR   The iteration of M-56 began in Monroe, looped east of US-24 & US-25, crossed back over at Flat Rock and continued northwesterly via New Boston and Belleville, then north to end at present US-12 north of Belleville. Over time, the northern end of M-56 was realigned onto the M-112/Willow Run Expwy for a time, and was scaled back to end at New Boston (northern terminus) until it was eventually scaled back to Monroe. There, it stayed as a very short connector between M-125 in downtown Monroe and I-75, and was eventually redesignated as part of M-50.
M-56 [II] FMR   Then, in the 1970s when M-21 was transferred to the M-78 (now I-69) freeway between Lennon and Flint, the former route of M-21 was redesignated as M-56. This lasted until the mid-1980s when M-21 was removed from I-69 and transferred back onto its previous alignment along Corunna Rd between Lennon and Flint.

I-69 TEMP FMR 1973—1992 Existed from 1973 until 1992, connecting completed portions of I-69 in Mid-Michigan and likely the only route ever officially designated "TEMPORARY" in Michigan. In 1973, the portion of the M-78 freeway from Morrice to Flint was redesignated as part of I-69 and all of M-78 from Charlotte to Morrice was redesignated as TEMPORARY I-69. The route of TEMP I-69 followed US-27 from Charlotte to I-96 southwest of Lansing, ran easterly on I-96 to I-496/US-127, then north on I-496 and US-127 to Saginaw Rd, then northeasterly out of the Lansing area, connecting to the I-69 freeway Morrice.
TEMP I-69 was cut into to pieces in 1987 when the portion of I-69 from I-96 southwest of Lansing in Eaton Co to Exit 94 north of Haslett in Clinton Co was designated as such. The portion of the former TEMP I-69 from US-127 to Exit 94 became part of a new BL I-69. The eastern segment of TEMP I-69 from Exit 94 to Morrice was replaced by a completed I-69 freeway in 1990, while the western segment of TEMP I-69 from Charlotte to I-96 was completely replaced by October 1992, when the final segment of I-69 was completed.

M-70 FMR c1920s—1959 M-70 originally existed as a Prescott-Whittemore routing in the early-1920s, later adjusted to its "classic" routing, from M-76 at Sterling to M-55 near Prescott. That "classic" routing began in Sterling and continued north on Melita Rd to Main Street Rd, then east to Reed Rd, north again on Reed Rd, east for a mile on Maple Ridge Rd to Maple Ridge, then north on Briggs Rd into Ogemaw Co. In Ogemaw Co, M-70 ran northerly along Sage Lake Rd through Prescott, ending at M-55. It was decommissioned in 1959.

M-74 FMR   In 1920, M-74 existed as a "cut-off" route for M-14 (US-27's predecessor route) in Clare and Missaukee Counties. Beginning at M-14 north of Harrison, M-74 ran west to Leota, then northerly through Moddersville and Butterfield, ending at M-14 at Merritt. (During that time, M-14 bent west, then north from Houghton Lake to connect with M-13 south of Kalkaska, instead of continuing northerly past Houghton and Higgins Lakes toward Grayling.)
In 1923, M-14 was routed to the east of Houghton and Higgins Lakes on the later route of US-27. The former route of M-14 in Missaukee Co from Merrit northerly to Moorestown, then west to Pioneer was redesignated as an extension of M-74.All of M-74 south of Moddersville (via Leota to M-14 north of Harrison) was turned back to local control in 1925, making M-74 a spur-route south of Merritt. The southern spur from Merritt to Moddersville was removed in 1938, with the remainder of M-74 being removed in 1939.

M-76 FMR   M-76's earliest alignment around 1920 connected Standish with Roscommon via a very convoluted route running through Sterling, Maple Ridge, Prescott, Selkirk, West Branch and St Helen. In 1923, M-76 moved to a direct alignment between Standish and West Branch. In 1925, M-76 was extended northerly to Grayling, then westerly to Kalkaska. A short disconnected segment of M-76 opened near Empire in 1934. In 1940, M-76 was scaled back to end in Roscommon, with all of M-76—including the disconnected segment at Empire—west of Grayling beging redesignated M-72.
During the late-60s and early-70s, the M-76 freeway was built in stages between Standish and I-75 south of Grayling, with segments opening in 1968, 1970 and 1971. Then, as the last segment was completed in 1973, all of the M-76 freeway was redesignated as I-75, and the M-76 designation has not been used since.
M-76 BUS FMR   For a few years in the early-1970s, a BUS M-76 routing existed through downtown West Branch, originating when the M-76 freeway was completed in the area. In 1973, BUS M-76 was redesignated BL I-75 when M-76 was redesignated I-75.

M-78 TRK FMR   For many years, there were two routing of US-27 and M-78 through downtown Lansing. The US-27/M-78 "Passenger Car Route" ran along Capitol Ave and Saginaw St. (This would be considered the "mainline" routing.) A US-27/M-78 "Truck Route" ran east on Main St, north on Grand Ave, east on Kalamazoo Ave and north on Larch St. TRUCK US-27/TRUCK M-78 was eventually replaced by the mainline US-27/M-78 when the Capitol Ave routing was given back to local control.

I-96 BS FMR   DETROIT: In 1962, when all of US-16 west of Farmington had been supplanted by either I-96 or I-196, the US-16 designation was removed from the state of Michigan, leaving the portion of Grand River Ave from Farmington into downtown Detroit "numberless." It was assigned the BS I-96 designation, which remained until the I-96/Jeffries Frwy was completed in 1977. The portion of BS I-96 northwest of 8 Mile Rd was designated M-102, while the portion southeast of there was designated M-5.

M-111 [I] FMR 1928—1938 The first M-111 was a connector route from M-13 north of Bay City to Bay City State Park (now Bay City Recreation Area). In the early 30s, the highway was made to double-back on itself and run back into Bay City, and in the mid-30s, the original segment of M-111 (the west leg of the loop) was redesignated M-47. In 1938, the rest of M-111 was replaced by M-47.
M-111 [II] FMR 1938—1940 When the remainder of M-111 near Bay City was replaced by M-47 in 1938, the designation was immediately transferred to the former M-6 routing from Phoenix to Eagle River in Keweenaw Co. Only two years later, M-111 in Keweenaw Co was replaced by a rerouted M-26, and the designation has not been used again since.

Upon US-112's removal from Michigan in 1961, BUS US-112 was redesignated BUS US-12.
US-112 BYP FMR   YPSILANTI: As an extension to the Willow Run Expwy system constructed during World War II, BYP US-112 was completed around the south side of Ypsilanti in c.1944-45. It was later designated as part of the US-112 mainline, then later US-12, as it is today. In mid-1956, US-112 was transferred onto the bypass routing (along with the addition of US-12) and the former route of US-112 through Ypsilanti was designated BUS US-112.
US-112S FMR c1933—? In c.1933, the portion of US-112 leading into Indiana was apparently designated "US-112S" in anticipation of Michigan extending the m.ainline of US-112 westerly via Niles to US-12 at New Buffalo. The short north-south segment of the highway leading into Indiana may have been designated "US-112S" in Michigan. This route later bore the designation M-205 and is now a county road named "Old M-205.".
M-112 FMR   When first constructed during World War II, the Willow Run and Detroit Industrial Expwys were designated M-112, due to the highway's relation to US-112 at either terminus. All of M-112 was redesignated US-12 in 1956, and the designation has not been used since.

M-114 FMR 1928—1943 M-114 was the original designation of what was to be the "Grand Rapids Beltline system," completely encircling the City of Grand Rapids. The first two segments of M-114—Wilson Ave from M-50 (now M-45) to US-16 (now Remembrance Ave), and 28th St from US-16 (now Cascade Rd) at Cascade to US-131 (now Division St)—were completed in 1928. In 1930, the western segment of M-114 was extended south from M-50 to M-21 (now Chicago Dr) in Grandville, and the southern leg was extended west from US-131 to Clyde Park Ave. In 1933, the East Beltline portion of M-114 was completed from US-131 south of Rockford to present 28th St southeast of Grand Rapids. Also, the southern leg of M-114 along present-day 28th St was extended west to meet the western leg of M-114, creating a three-sided beltline, with a spur to Cascade.
Work began on the "North Beltline" segment of M-114, running east-west along 3 Mile Rd, with the portion from the "East Beltline" westerly to the Grand River being completed by 1942. It was at that time, however, that the south and west legs of the Beltline system were redesignated as BYP US-16, leaving M-114 on the east and partially-completed north legs. Sources show the partially-completed north leg of M-114 along today's 3 Mile Rd was turned back to local control in 1943, with the last remaining segment of M-114—the East Beltline portion—being redesignated as part of BYP US-131 in 1945. The M-114 designation has not been used since.

M-122 FMR 1929—1957 Originally constructed as an access route to Straits State Park in St. Ignace, M-122 also served another purpose. The highway was built in 1929 to connect US-31 in downtown St Ignace at the State Highway Ferry Docks with the entrance to Straits State Park. By 1936, M-122's focus had shifted from providing access to the state park to providing access to the new state highway ferry docks in southeastern St. Ignace. US-2 was rerouted into St. Ignace at the same time, so M-122 essentially served as a connection between US-2 and the ferry docks. The highway was removed from the official highway map in mid-1952, although it seems the route may have held on in reality until the completion of the Mackinac Bridge in 1957.

M-144 [I] FMR 1936—1940 The first M-144 debuted in 1936 and served as a short connector route from M-39/Michigan Ave (later M-43, now un-signed M-143) to the Michigan State Police Headquarters in East Lansing. Four years later in 1940, M-144 was transferred back to local control.
M-144 [II] FMR 1940—1973 The M-144 designation was almost immediately transferred onto what had been previously designated M-72 from M-76 east of Roscommon to M-72 near Luzerne. A few realignments from the late-40s to the early-60s brought M-144's termini to downtown Roscommon and M-72 near Eldorado. When the completion of I-75 in 1973 made M-18's route northwest of Roscommon unnecessary, it was transferred onto the route of M-144, completely supplanting it. The M-144 designation has not been used since.
M-145 FMR   The M-145 designation was to be used for a western bypass of the City of Jackson which was never completed. M-145—which would have likely been redesignated as M-50 or BYP M-50 if completed—was to begin at M-50 near Vandercook Lake and run arc westerly, northwesterly and northerly around the City of Jackson, connecting back with M-50 northwest of Jackson. One section of highway was acutally designated M-145 (on paper, if not in reality): Springport Rd between Airport Rd and Rives Junction Rd. This proposed bypass was likely dropped in the 1950s in favor of the eastern (now US-127) freeway bypass.
M-146 FMR 1933—? M-146 dates to 1933 when a north-south M-21 Connector route along 24th St in western Port Huron between US-25 (later M-25, now BL I-94) and M-21 (now Lapeer Rd). In 1954, a new approach highway was constructed leading away from the Blue Water Bridge, arcing southwesterly to M-21/Lapeer Rd and was designated M-146, connecting with the existing M-146 routing by jogging east on M-21. This new approach route was converted to freeway in c.1958. In 1964, much of the newer freeway portion of M-146 was assumed into the I-94/US-25 freeway, while the westernmost portion of that freeway section of M-146 became somewhat of a glorified off-ramp from I-94, but retaining the M-146 designation. At that time, though, the original 24th St alignment of M-146 was turned back to local control. At some point after that—possibly when the M-21 freeway spur was completed—the M-146 desingnation was dropped and has not been re-used since.
M-147 FMR 1936—c1991 M-147 was a short highway connecting M-106 with the State Prison of Southern Michigan just northeast of Jackson. It was in existence from 1936 to c.1991, when it was turned back to local control.

In early 1935, a second M-151 is designated from US-223 near Ottawa Lake easterly via Samaria, ending at US-25 (now M-125) at Erie. Simultaneously, the original M-151 is technically redesignated as an extension of US-112 into Niles, although the M-151 markers on the original route may have remained until later in 1935. By 1935, the original M-151 is officially relegated to history.

In 1934, an M-158 loop was under construction north on Pioneer Rd from Burt Rd to Montgomery Rd, then west on Montgomery back to M-9 at Frontier, effectively making it a loop from M-9. Later in 1934, it seems the routing of M-9 was transferred to the new M-158, but the M-158 routing continued to appear on official highway maps until 1936!

It was later replaced by M-55 when the former route of that highway through Houghton Lake Heights was designated BUS M-55, and still later became part of US-27 when the western Houghton Lake bypass was completed (now Old US-27).
M-170 FMR   One of many very short state highway spur routes around the state, usually connecting a downtown district with a nearby state highway bypassing the center of the city. In this case, M-170 connected downtown McMillan in Luce Co with M-28 south of town.
M-171 FMR 1932—1960 M-171 debuted in 1932 as a loop route off US-23, beginning in northern Alcona Co, looping northwesterly through Spruce, then north and northeast to meet back with US-23 southwest of downtown Alpena. In late-1934, that route was turned back to local control, but was brought back in late-1936 (or early-1937) along the former inland route of US-23 from Oscoda to near Spruce. M-171 was removed in 1960 and its former route received the F-41 designation in 1970.
M-172 FMR   One of many very short state highway spur routes around the state, usually connecting a downtown district with a nearby state highway bypassing the center of the city. In this case, M-170 connected downtown Middleville in Barry Co with M-37 on the east side of town. This was when M-37 entered the area via State Rd and E Main St, then turned northerly to leave town via Grand Rapids St and Whitneyville Rd. M-172 ran along Main St from Grand Rapids St westerly into the downtown district.
M-173 [I] FMR   One of many very short state highway spur routes around the state, usually connecting a downtown district with a nearby state highway bypassing the center of the city. In this case, M-173 connected downtown Orleans in Ionia Co with M-44 north of town in the mid-1930s.
M-173 [II] FMR 1939—1972 M-173 was the last of three highway designations to be applied to the route through downtown Menominee from the Ann Arbor Railroad ferry docks to US-41. This third designation—replacing the M-35 routing through downtown—existed from 1939 to 1972 and was likely removed after the carferry stopped running from Elberta to Menominee.
M-174 [I] FMR   One of many very short state highway spur routes around the state, usually connecting a downtown district with a nearby state highway bypassing the center of the city. In this case, M-174 connected downtown Buchanan in Berrien Co with US-112 (now US-12) south of town.
M-174 [II] FMR   Originally designated M-120, the portion of Logan St (now M L King Jr Blvd) in Lansing from Grand River Ave to the Ingham/Clinton Co line was designated M-174 for many years. It was turned back to local control in the early-1970s.
M-175 FMR   One of many very short state highway spur routes around the state, usually connecting a downtown district with a nearby state highway bypassing the center of the city. In this case, M-175 connected downtown Galien in Berrien Co with US-112 (now US-12) south of town.
M-176 FMR   One of many very short state highway spur routes around the state, usually connecting a downtown district with a nearby state highway bypassing the center of the city. In this case, M-176 connected downtown Durand in Shiawassee Co with M-71 north of town.
M-177 FMR 1936—1939 M-177 replaced the M-46 designation along Michigan Ave from US-27/M-46 in downtown St Louis to US-27A (now BUS US-27) just east of downtown Alma in late 1936. M-177 lasted until late-1939.
M-178 FMR   In the 1930s, M-28 ran across central Alger Co along the present-day route of M-94, while M-94 ran north from Shingleton along today's H-15, then west into Musining on today's H-58, continuing toward AuTrain along present-day M-28. This created a 1-mile state highway between M-94 in downtown Munising and M-28 near Wetmore, which was given the M-178 designation in mid-1934. In 1941, the routes of M-28 and M-94 west of Munising were swapped to their present routings, eliminating the M-178 designation.

M-208 FMR   M-208 existed along a 13-mile stretch of present-day M-72 from US-27 (now BL I-75) in Grayling to the "Wakeley Bridge" over a branch of the Au Sable River in southeast Crawford Co. When the connection between the Wakeley Bridge and M-72 at Eldorado was completed in late-1940 or early-1941, M-72 was rerouted westerly, replacing M-208 in its entirety into Grayling. The M-208 designation has not been re-used since.
M-209 FMR   For many years, M-209 was a very short spur highway leading from the 90-degree bend in M-109 at Glen Haven, northerly through the one-time community of Glen Haven, ending at the access road to the Coast Guard Lifesaving Station. M-209 was 0.4 mile in length, meaning it was 0.3 mile SHORTER than the current shortest state highway, M-212, which clocks in at 0.7 mile. M-209 was turned back to local control in c.1995-96.
M-210 FMR   After the M-21 southern bypass of Pewamo was completed, the former route of M-21 was designated M-210 and served as a "business route" of sorts through the center of the village. Later, the route of M-210 was turned back to local control, and the designation has never been re-used.

M-213 [I] FMR   The first M-213 was a 14-mile highway running along present-day B-35 from M-46 east of Muskegon to M-20 (now M-120) at Brunswick, east of Holton. It was turned back to local control in c.1959-60.
M-213 [II] FMR   The second M-213 was immediately christenend along what had been M-20 from US-31 (now Whitehall Rd) in North Muskegon to Muskegon State Park. This North Muskegon-to-Muskegon State Park route survived until 1970 when it was turned back to local control.
M-214 FMR 1934—1953 M-214 dated to late-1934 when the former M-79 route from west of Nashville to downtown Vermontville was re-designated M-214. (At this time, M-66 through Ionia Co was designated M-14.) The highway was later scaled back from Vermontville to end in downtown Nashville, serving as a 3-mile connector route along today's M-79 from M-79 west of Nashville to M-14 in Nashville. M-214 survived M-14's redesignation as M-66 in 1941 by about a decade, until it was supplanted by a rerouting of M-79 in 1953.
M-215 FMR   M-215 was a 7-mile route running from US-12 in Lawrence to M-43 just east of Bangor in Van Buren Co. It was turned back to local control (becoming Co Rd 215) in late-1953 or early-1954.

M-218 FMR   Originally, M-218 began at US-16 (now Grand River Ave) in "West Novi" (part of the present City of Wixom), running north along Wixom Rd to Wixom, east on Fourteen Mile Rd (now Pontiac Trail) to Walled Lake, then northeasterly on Walled Lake Rd (now also Pontiac Trail) via Orchard Lake and Keego Harbor, ending at M-58 (later US-10, now US-24) southwest of downtown Pontiac. In c.1937, M-218 was extended into downtown Pontiac. In 1963, the entire route was transferred to local control. Extensions of M-218 southwesterly through South Lyon to US-12 at Chelsea and northeasterly via Utica to US-25 at Richmond were proposed in the 1930s, but never built. These extensions would have turned M-218 into a de facto Detroit bypass route.
M-219 FMR   M-219 was one of several highways whose sole purpose was to connect the various railroad and carferry docks with the state highway system. Others were located in Menominee, St Ignace, Elberta, Ludington, Muskegon, etc. Commissioned in the mid-1930s, M-219 lasted until c.1966 as the Ann Arbor Railroad slowly decreased the number of ferry sailings from Elberta to Manistique, ending the service in 1967.

TO I-75 FMR   This "TO I-75" designation existed in Metro Detroit while I-75 was being constructed through the city. In the field, this route was posted with "TO I-75" route marker assemblies as opposed to simply posting "I-75" markers alone or as a "TEMP I-75" routing.
The first "TO I-75" routing at Detroit began at the current US-24 CONNECTOR in Taylor, continuing north on US-24/Telegraph Rd to M-102/Eight Mile Rd, then east on M-102 to Stephenson Hwy, turning north on Stephenson (formerly M-150) to 11 Mile Rd, where a completed segment of I-75 picked back up.
The second routing began at the I-75 & M-39/Southfield Rd interchange at Lincoln Park, continuing north on M-39/Southfield Rd & Frwy to M-102/Eight Mile Rd, then east on M-102 to I-75. A disconnected part of "TO I-75" existed between 9 Mile and 11 Mile Rds. The M-39/M-102 portion of "TO I-75" was "decommissioned" in 1969, with the short 9 Mile-to-11 Mile Rd section remaining until 1971.
TO I-75 FMR   This "TO I-75" designation existed in Central Michigan while I-75 was being constructed from Bay City to Grayling. In the field, this route was posted with "TO I-75" route marker assemblies as opposed to simply posting "I-75" markers alone or as a "TEMP I-75" routing
"TO I-75" began at the jct of US-10, US-23 & M-25 west of Bay City, continued westerly along US-10 to Clare, then northerly along US-27 from Clare to the completed portion of I-75 south of Grayling. "TO I-75" lasted until I-75 was completed along its present route in 1973.
TO I-75 FMR   This "TO I-75" designation existed in Central Michigan while I-75 was being constructed from Bay City to Grayling. In the field, this route was posted with "TO I-75" route marker assemblies as opposed to simply posting "I-75" markers alone or as a "TEMP I-75" routing
According to the Official Michigan Transportation Map, "TO I-75" began in 1961 along what had been US-27 from Gaylord to just north of Indian River near Topinabee, lasting only about a year when I-75 was completed along the stretch in the Fall of 1962.
TO I-94 FMR   The "TO I-94" designation existed in Metro Detroit while I-94 was being constructed in southeastern Macomb Co. In the field, this route was posted with "TO I-94" route marker assemblies as opposed to simply posting "I-94" markers alone or as a "TEMP I-94" routing
"TO I-94" began at the end of I-94 at M-102/Vernier Rd in Harper Woods, continuing west on M-120 to US-25/Gratiot Ave, then north on US-25/Gratiot Ave to Metropolitan Pkwy, then easterly back to a completed segment of I-94. In 1964, "TO I-94" was moved from Metropolitan Pkwy south to 14 Mile Rd. In 1966, when I-94 was completed through southeastern Macomb Co, the "TO I-94" designation was removed.
